The object of the conference on Common Civility is to contribute to further development of ICL by the exchange of thoughts between legal scholars, practitioners and social scientists. It focuses on the crucial point all kinds of international and internationalised tribunals have in common: Their effectiveness and thus their ability to carry out their task, i.e. to end impunity for the worst crimes known to humanity, depend to a great extend on the functionality of their procedural law.

The main objective of the conference is to explore the background and consequences of the civil-common law conflict, to disclose how it affects the daily functioning of international tribunals, which tensions arise from the combination of features from the different legal systems and to discuss how they might best be resolved.

The Conference will be hosted by the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and is co-organized by the Amsterdam Centre of Inter-disciplinary Research on International Crimes (ACIC) at VU University and the Institut für Kriminalwissenschaften of Göttingen University.

The conference fee: € 95,- *
